A Play Mat For Ubonga

A game aide developed by Jim Wright

Here's an idea that will make playing the Ubonga campaign easier. Make a counter for each man in the command. Jim uses poker chips, but any type counter can be used, so long as the man it represents can be identified.

Next, make a game mat laid out as follows:


Sentry Detail



Hunting Detail



Drill Detail

The player assigns men to details by simply placing the counters in the appropriate box. This will cut down on the actual paper work and make the game more visually appealing.

Thanks Jim, for the great idea.
